an improved security of economic climate. after four years if obama is reelected. i do not suggest that the gamble should not be taken. simply, that history into playing with politics might give us pause. so what does history predicted about a second term for barack obama lacks were he reelected with so few presidents having success at that time in office. what are the challenges that face those who have trouble or failed second terms, and what about others to succeed? and ken barack obama overcome these challenges if he is reelected to become a member of that select group of presidents that waded through the quagmires of second terms come and somehow came through relatively unscathed? success in a second term does not imply that there were not failures, or significant stumbles. some even severe during that tenure. but the net impact of that time in office had to be the fulfillment of a significant number of the following measures of success. first, the president must provide defense against foreign or domestic threat. secondly, the president must retain or expand economic, politic

-- >> america wanted barack obama for four more years, and now we have him. by the way, good luck with that. chris: that was a bit sarcastic. today as the president take the oath, the new nbc wall street poll traces a geographic divide. 60% of americans who live in cities say they like the president personally, and like his policies. in the suburbs 43% like him and his policies. but in rural areas it's just 27%. and that's what you see playing out in congress. also inside the poll 6-10 strong republicans dislike the president personally as well as his policies. joe, there's a deep groove of resistance out there, and i guess the question is, how does the first term look, when you look back on it, compared to how it's looking? >> he's going to drive them completely crazy, those 60% of hrps in this term. and the reason for it is that there's an enormous story that we're missing, and that is we have had two important votes in the last three weeks. one was on sandy, the other was on raising taxes. in both cases obama had a bipartisan majority in the house. that is a governing majority. he's goin

with the conservative movement that if he endorses something close to obama, i think by the end of the year you could get a deal on immigration. even that one when you get to the nuts and bolts, politics are tough for a lot of the republicans, particularly in southern districts. >> thanks so much. you'll be on "morning joe" later? >> i will. >> don't use it all up on me. as always, let us know why you're awake or tell us how you'll be spending your martin luther king jr./inauguration day. we'll read the best responses, as always, later in the show. still ahead on "way too early," the baltimore ravens? what do you mean? do we have any ravens fans here? they shocked tom brady and set up an all harbaugh bowl. and later, saturday night live's second hand news correspondents, they get all the facts wrong. that clip and a check on weather when "way too early" comes right back live from the dubliner. >>> the u.s. supreme court today overturned laws on the books for nearly a century and ruled that corporations can spend freely now on political campaigns.

fatigues. three years from now, people will be writing columns about obama fatigue, just as they did about clinton fatigue and bush fatigue and reagan fatigue. franklin roosevelt only gave 30 fireside chats in 12 years. he understood instinctively the dangers of overexposure. he also controlled the media to an extent that modern presidents could not hope to. host: looking back, fdr broke the unwritten code of serving more than two terms. in today's modern age, could we have more than two terms for any president? you worked for ronald reagan. if his health was better, of course, would he have run for a third term? guest: i doubt it. he talked about it after he left office. he was going to campaign for appeal of that amendment. he thought the american people should be able to vote for anyone wanted to vote for. it is very difficult to imagine after eight years of office -- we've used up our presidents. that is why this string of two- term presidents is really so unusual. we have a string of one-term presidencies before that. that became the norm. host: let me share with ronald reagan said in
. >> four years ago, enormous expectations for president obama. there were a lot of people, hope and change was big. this time, call it pragmatic hope as far as the public is concerned. as you see here, just less than 30% believe they're going to evaluate president obama with a clean fresh slate. 64% will evaluate him based on past feelings. and here, a continuation of a trend we saw throughout the first term. very similar to what ronald reagan dealt with during his eight years. personally, the public really likes president obama. 74%. but his policies, again, more people disapprove of the policies. 49%, than approve of them there, at 47%. so what about the next four years? sort of a mixed optimism, if you will. i go back to the idea of pragmatic hope. 43% optimistic. 43% pessimistic. 22% kind of mixed. and staying with the theme of word clouds, david, we asked folks to send a message to president obama. what would they like to say for his second term? and as you can see here, look at the most popular phrases. a lot of them have to do with the economy. fix the economy. create jobs. then the
, um, and stan dunham, obama's grandfather, was with 8 years old at the time that his mother, obama's yeah great grandmother, died. today lived in a little house here on buchanan street down a few blocks, and the great grandfather, ralph dunham, ran a garage and auto shop. it's sixth avenue which is right around the corner, and that's where she took some strychnine and was found dead on the night of thanksgiving 1926. >> could you drive a little slower? >> i sure or can. we're now approaching the house, 703 buchanan. >> [inaudible] >> little white two-of story shotgun house, no more than 10 feet white. one house from the corner of seventh and buchanan. little front porch. i'm sure it's the same house as in 1926, although -- this is where she died, inside those walls. >> [inaudible] >> the garage where the -- [inaudible] >> alleyway could have been -- [inaudible] because that brick is old. >> host: david maraniss, how old was she when she killed herself? >> guest: she was 26. she was born in 1900. >> host: and why'd she kill herself? >> guest: she killed herself because of her -- wel
of optimism about the next four years. i think mr. obama is doing a heck of a good job. he is getting a lot of his promises down. i hope the next four years are as good as the last. thank you for having me. host: eric in seattle, what do think about all this? -- do you think about all this? you always have to turn down the volume and dirty -- on your tv. in today's inaugural, you'll hear a lot from senator schumer. here he is explaining his role in today's inauguration. >> the hardest part is trying to make sure everybody, there will be a huge crowd, not as big as four years ago, but a huge crowd, they get to their places, their seeds or standing places. as you know, there were big problems four years ago, not the fault of the committee, but of some people. we're trying to deal with huge numbers of people. we have done a couple of things -- we are using an iphone at -- app that will tell the on where they are and where the best route to go to, taking into account lines and everything, to get to their seat. people waited in line for hours, and when they got to the gate, they were told they w

term, president obama making it clear who is in charge the next four years laying out a bold agenda in the inaugural address. that's how i read it. with more, maryann marsh, a democratic strategist, and rich lawry, editor of "the national review.
